Fancy some Cake, Cardiff?

Iris Prize Film Festival and Birchgrove Women's Institute to premiere short film Cake! during evening of LGBTQ+ films 🍰



On the eve of The WI (National Federation of Women's Institutes) 2018 Annual Meeting at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, Birchgrove WI will host an evening of LGBT+ short films at the nearby Cineworld multiplex.


Drawing from the diverse archives of the Iris Prize Festival, Cardiff’s prestigious international LGBT+ short film award, the evening will culminate in the premiere of Cake!



This short film was written, directed and performed by members of Birchgrove WI, and filmed in the north Cardiff suburb of Birchgrove earlier this year.


It features music from Cardiff music scene stalwarts and John Peel favourites, The Loves, whose frontman Simon Love was nominated for the 2016 Welsh Music Prize.


The evening will conclude with drinks and – of course! - cake in Cineworld’s BAFTA Cymru bar.



Birchgrove WI president Kate Foley says: “We were delighted to work with Iris in making our film — their support and technical expertise has been fantastic.


"We've learnt a lot, not only about filmmaking but also the benefits of being an inclusive WI.


"Through sharing our stories and experiences, we have learnt the importance of supporting each other and appreciating our differences.”


This event takes place on 5 June 2018, 6.30 – 9. Tickets are free, but booking via Eventbrite is essential to secure your place.
